Last Day in Seoul (War Memorial of Korea, Congee, and Nanta)

After a busy two days, we decided to take it easy for our last day in Seoul.  This morning we walked (and it was very cold) down to the War Memorial of Korea (free) and spent a couple hours going through the various exhibits.  Then took the subway to the shopping district of Myeongdong to have lunch and see a musical called Nanta.  For lunch we ate congee (rice porridge)  — another great-tasting and inexpensive meal (6,000 won, less than US$6).  The musical Nanta, which has been performed all over the world, was very entertaining a nice way to cap off a wonderful vacation to this awesome city.

About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.

    • Jiwoo,

      Thanks for stopping by and taking time to leave a comment! I really enjoyed Korea and look forward to coming back. I’m sure there is so much more to see and eat!
